Apprehension to insomnia

Neurology appointment in 6 hours.  Mind racing, just because.  Sleep elusive.

 

Woe is me.

 

Not again this song and dance.  Pervasive, stalking me.

 

Weariness embraces me but drowsiness escapes me.

Make it stop.  I want off.

 

I miss sleep.  Deep,undisturbed sleep.

 

TICK

 

TOCK

Oh Dear I've heard it does this to some people! I have the opposite problem. nearly 8 years post and I'll still sleep 14 hours a day if I don't stop myself.  I used to be a morning person now I'm doing well if I'm up and about before 10am.

 

Try not to worry about it (both the sleep and the appointment). I know easier said than done but try.

Hi Kelli,

I was given Trazadone too.  It worked well, but I couldn't continue. (Major brain fog the morning after. :#$%/!!:)  Hope you have a better experience!

I have always been a night person, and my sister brings me breakfast, which is my most substantial meal of my day, pretty much 10am sharp, so I am always up and ready for that but quite often go right back to bed immediately after eating.  My sleepiness might be attributable to the marijuana usage, but it's something that helps me.  since I no longer work and have no real responsibility other than my own needs I guess it's irrelevant.

I've got the same problem, but other way around.  I crash when I get into bed, usually asleep within minutes, but wake after 5 or 6 hours, and cannot get back to sleep.  So I get up and start a l_o_n_g day.

 

And sleeping pills seem to have no real effect, other than leaving me fuzzy-headed when I wake up 6 hours later.
